Mirage Emigrants is the third collection by Saluki Regicide, and the sixth release overall. Saluki Regicide continues to surprise and delight listeners with strange visionary abstractions in sound. Dark, at times nostalgic, these compositions manage somehow to be simultaneously warm and alien.
This album has been described as "simple and often melodic, yet freaky beyond comprehension, like nothing I've heard before" and as "an enigmatic and nostalgic opus that suggests somehow that with the right combination of drugs, the logic of it all might emerge."

my intro to webbed hand
the cover art grabbed me first-- but it is the music that draws me back over and over... my wife and i recently watched "the exorcism of emily rose" and the next day, while i was playing Mirage Emigrants, she reamrked that she found the music more frightening than the movie had been!
but the spookiness is subtle, it does not go for the throat, like something on Cold Meat Industry-- these sounds creep up on you very slowly, swirling around in an almost beautiful way... every song on this release is fascinating and deep... it is full of effects, but never sounds cluttered-- i'd call it near perfection of some genre of music that does not yet have a name...
great stuff! if you are a fan of the bizarre and don't mind the lengthening shadows-- i'd suggest you check this out (and all the other offerings that webbed hand have graced us with)

Heady but not pretentious, psychedelic but not silly, this may just be Saluki Regicide's best work yet. Get it while you can!
